Metal parts manufacturing usually involves a series of processes to size, shape and build the desired final product. For example, a simple piece of metal wire taken from the metal wire coil can be transformed into a seat headrest frame by means of different processes such as bending, notching, broaching, stamping and chamfering. Depending on the manufacturer requirements, the fabrication cycle may have more or less processes.

Do you have products, for which manufacturing on a series machine is not practical?
The intelligent combination of technologies can result in a special machine.
Our concepts are as individual as your product to be manufactured.
Traditionally, in any metal part fabrication cycle, each process is performed independently requiring specific tooling (such as presses and dies) and operators for each of them. Of course, these requirements result in higher costs and reduced efficiency, which in turn means less productivity, a longer time to market and lower profitability.
To avoid all the negative aspects from traditional metal parts manufacturing, Schmale Machinery provides fully automated solutions, especially customized to match the specific requirements of your manufacturing process. These solutions can integrate different processes such as bending, embossing, notching, flattening, joining, punching, swaging of tubes and wire in a complex fabrication cycle according to the production requirements.
The intelligent combination of technologies can result in a special machine, and our concepts are as individual as your product to be manufactured.
Talking about capabilities, bending slides go from forces of 2 tons up to 24 tons, finger benders bend wire from 2mm to 25mm (1″), press units go from 40 tons to 700 tons and swage presses go from 24 tons to 300 tons.
Talking about materials, the machines are mostly used to process metal wire, although they are designed so that they can also be used to process metal tubes, sheet metal and metal strips. Moreover, materials such as plastic, rubber and others can also be used in the assembling processes included in the fabrication cycle. Also, inks and laser can be included in stamping or marking processes if required.
Why Schmale Machinery
As it is the case with all other production technologies, Schmale places the highest standards on the productivity and future viability of the machines created. The customer receives a modern, future-oriented and energy-efficient machine that has been precisely tailored to his requirements to produce complex components from wires in an economical and flexible manner.
